Truck: 1989-1994 Ford Diesel IDI F250/F350

Engine: 2003-2012 Common Rail Cummins

Transmission:  1987-1997 Ford 7.3L Diesel Diesel ZF-5 speed

 The kit includes instructions for the adapter kit only, the engine to transmission adapter, the required torque converter adapter set, the required starter, and bolts.

*Before ordering, make sure you have selected the correct adapter plate according to the transmission you are using, and read the important information below:

Supporting parts you need- or may already have- that are not included in this kit are:

- 94-02 Dodge Cummins starter

- intercooler, tubes, boots and clamps

  - Dodge 5 speed flywheel   

 - Clutch

 - Custom pilot bushing

- Miscellaneous bolts, hoses, and fittings

- See the Overview for your truck for other important parts that may apply!

Installation and use information:

- NO grinding is necessary on the transmission bell housing for starter clearance!
- Minimal and insignificant grinding of the Cummins adapter plate bolt bosses may be required, but this does not ruin the Cummins engine block core value.

- The Dodge 5-speed clutch may be used with the Ford release bearing, but we recommend using the South Bend 13" Ford 7.3L Diesel 5-speed clutch and custom flywheel we offer.  This flywheel already has a ball bearing style pilot bearing installed.      

- Using the 2003-2012 Dodge Cummins starter may be possible, but the solenoid wire connector usually hits the oil pan rail- so be prepared to purchase a 1994-2002 Dodge Cummins starter.
